Swoony Boys Podcast Episode 66: June 2019 #EJKMBookClub ft. The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

We’re back with our monthly book club and here’s our next episode of the #EJKMBookClub. Each month, one of us chooses a book and makes the other three read it, and this time, it was Jaime’s turn to choose our book.

This month Jaime chose: The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw!

The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw

This episode is all about The Wicked Deep by Shea Ernshaw. If you listened to last month’s episode, you know we did something we’ve never done before in #EJKMBookClub history–we read a book that none of us have read before. Our reactions were definitely mixed here, so have a listen and join us with your thoughts about this book using the #EJKMBookClub hashtag on instagram and twitter. Be warned there are some SPOILERS ahead. We don’t exactly spell it all out, but we figured since this book was a couple of years old, it’s fair game. We’ll also be announcing our next month’s pick in this episode.
